General Information

With the emergence of Open Educational Resources and more recently MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), institutions in general and faculty in particular, have been immersed in the world movement of Open Education. In this new scenario, many institutions have understood the need to create support teams to assist their teachers when creating this type of educational resources. Here the Library plays an important role, given its experience in all matters relating to copyright and free licenses and the search and selection of educational resources. In fact, the Library is the natural ally to support and promote open education initiatives at your institution.

The aim of this workshop, organized within the scope of the MADROÑO consortium and its member universities, is to provide insight into the fundamental role of the Library in Open Education, as well as share significant experiences that have recently taken place in this field.
